Lots of Pics!

Two layouts today and a living room update. I've been creating layouts and projects for my cousin, Sharon Hyatt, who is a Creative Memories Consultant. The first layout was in a previous post, but I added a verse to the bottom corner, so this is an updated pic. I used all Creative Memories papers on this layout except for the cardstock, which is out of my stash. Rosebud flowers are from Prima. Butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart. Felt flower border is from Michaels. The scripture verse is a CM vellum quote.
Where Your Treasure Is
Fun in the Sun!
I used the Delight Additions Surfer Girl paper and stickers, Fiskars border punch, ribbon and rhinestones from Michaels, and Ranger stickles to add some glitter on the swirl.
Living Room Pics!
Just wanted to give you a living room update. I'm about 95% finished painting! Here are some pictures of my tranformed room:

Hard Labor!!

After four days of hard labor, here are the results:
I have half of my living room finished! I'm planning to paint the other half this week. I'm really pleased with the colors and the end result! This room was totally white for 11 years! I pretty much took the summer off from paper crafting to focus on projects around the house, but I'm planning to go back to scrapbooking and cardmaking very soon!!

Burgandy Beauty!!

A friend of mine came over this past week, and we decided to paint one wall in my living room Deep Garnet. I like it! I'm going to paint the rest of the room tan. I think the end result will be very rich and elegant! Take a look:

Sweet Treats!

My husband and I are picking up our little Anna (8 years old!) this morning from her first week ever of junior camp. She was so excited to go on Monday! I know she had a wonderful time! She had a sweet counselor named Abby, whose seven little "chicks" followed her around all week. I thought it would be nice to make Abby a sweet treat to show her how much we appreciate her taking such good care of Anna all week.
I got this idea from the Paper Crafts Magazine "Home and Heart". I simply put the yellow check paper through my printer to get "Sweet Treats for You". I trimmed it out with scalloped edge scissors, then matted it with black cardstock and adhered it to my paper bag. I filled the bag with a dozen chocolate chip cookies, folded the top down and punched two holes in it, then tied some ribbon through the holes. Kinda cute, eh? We're off to camp soon. Have a great weekend!
